Evacuation orders lifted for some parts of Santa Barbara County

Santa Barbara County Fire Search Dog Reilly looks for victims in damaged and destroyed homes in Montecito

She has been informed that she wouldn't have water or gas, but she still feels grateful.

Some 100 homes in the picturesque Santa Barbara area have been levelled to the ground on Tuesday, and at least 300 buildings have been damaged.

Images that captured the area north of Winfrey's 65-acre estate showed severely damaged homes that were completely engulfed by the river of mud. "He said so many times that after his passing, 'Make sure everyone prays for my soul.' We will, Roy!" Theresa was rescued and said to be in stable condition, but Roy did not survive.

Sometime after 2am on Tuesday, intense rain washed down vast amounts of loose soil and rock from the hillsides surrounding Santa Barbara.

Short term, making the public ready to evacuate during heavy rains is key, he said.

Rescue crews continued to search for survivors amid the mud and wreckage of Montecito's massive debris field on Thursday, but acknowledged that the window to save lives is rapidly closing.

Dr. Montgomery and his wife, daughter and son were caught in the mudslide. Rebecca Riskin, a real estate agent and founder of Riskin Partners, was also killed in the mudslides in Montecito, the company confirmed in a post on its Facebook page Wednesday.

The geological survey said many deaths from debris flows occur when people are asleep, just as happened in Montecito, where heavy rain fell in a short period of time a few hours after midnight.

"We were searching houses, debris fields and basically anything they couldn't visually clear, we would clear with the canines", said Brent Brainard, Decker's handler and captain with San Diego City Fire-Rescue.

Crews marked places where bodies were found, often far away from a home, and used that information to guess where other victims might have ended up as the surging mud carried or buried them.

The Coast Guard saved a family of five trapped in the debris of their ruined home in Carpenteria by an eight-foot sea of sludge that blocked their escape by land. "Direct Relief is committed for as long as it takes to help the Santa Barbara and Montecito community recover from these tragic events". "We are teamed up with partner agencies responding to this tragedy and are working 24/7 to make progress toward reopening U.S. 101 while being cooperative with the search efforts underway". The community is also reminded to report all missing persons to the Emergency Operations Center at 805-681-5542 and please be prepared to provide as much detail as possible to the call takers.

Several houses were destroyed, and residents were unaccounted for in neighborhoods hard to reach because of downed trees and power lines, he said.

When she rang Oprah, the iconic TV star said that her 65-acre estate, called Promised Land, had suffered damage - but nothing compared to other homes.

UPDATE (4:10 p.m.) - Sheriff Bill Brown says another victim was located Friday, raising the death toll to 18.

"It's as exhausting, frustrating and tedious as looking for a needle in a haystack", LAFD Battalion Chief Mark Akahoshi said, while hunched over a topographical map of surrounding terrain studded with ranches and mansions offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.
